Moving on to colder and more electronic pastures, while seeking to infuse his music with more emotion, he started working with Paris’s crunkest rap crew : TTC, joining them on their 2 lp’s “Ceci n’est pas un disque” and the hit “Batards Sensibles” (Big Dada). the “Beat Down” EP met great enthusiasm both in France and abroad, was playlisted by such luminaries as Laurent Garnier, Michael Mayer, Dj Rupture, Feadz and Diplo. “Dans le club” (the 1st single off TTC’s second LP) was even bigger, single-handedly launching a new sub-genre, fusing dirty south immediacy with something robots would fuck to.
Clubhoppn (2004), his second solo release was also played everywhere, by everybody, including Justice, Modeselektor and Erol Alkan.
Para One is also one half of FuckALoop, Institubes’ ceo Tacteel being the other half. The emphasis here is on live techno experimentation, with Drexciya looming large in the background. Most recently they remixed Ellen Allien’s last single “Down”.
As a solo remixer para himself remixed artists such as Agoria, Animal Machine, Krazy Baldhead, Daft Punk, and浜崎あゆみ. His remix of The Prime Time Of Your Life was even used in Daft Punk’s Alive 2007 Encore.
